It's not angelfish in particular but instead it's that your tank is infested with ich. The fish that currently reside in the tank likely have developed a resistance to it while the angel has not.

Should I keep my UV sterilizer running while treating the tank?

So you didn't QT it before introducing to the tank? If you've had ich in the past and not run your tank fallow for 6-8 weeks then the ich has always been in your system, some fish are just better at holding it at bay. Best thing to do is to treat all fish in a separate tank and run your display fallow for the ich to completely die off...
